Congratulations to Phil Wilson (Middlesbrough, England) and the other 151 graduates from Milligan College who today received their diplomas. Phil is pictured atop the 4,000 pound sculpture of the College's buffalo mascot that was installed earlier this school year (story here). I've had Phil in class and have gotten to know his wonderful family over the last few years -- and I wish him and all the other graduates the very best.
At commencement you wear your square-shaped mortarboards. My hope is that from time to time you will let your minds be bold, and wear sombreros.
